People are fucking insane.

Utter insanity considering the number of cops who have died from COVID.

This stance is COMPLETELY political and has nothing to do with health and science.

by Anonymousreply 2October 14, 2021 2:15 PM

Isn’t COVID the leading cause of death among cops this year? Far outpacing violence and even car accidents (which are usually at the top)?

That's fine. More job openings, folks!

God I really hate these fucking pigs. Hopefully this hill they decided to die on will open vacancies for black and brown folks to occupy instead.

That’s my take on it R4. My partner’s sister is a school principal in a rural Canadian town, and actually has teachers who’ve accepted they’ll lose their jobs for not getting vaccinated. They have 19 bus drivers refusing vaccination, who will also lose their jobs, and are prepared to do so. The school board is worried there won’t be enough drivers to fill the routes. I say good riddance, and great opportunities for sane people to scoop up those jobs. The only thing I can see happening is anyone who does take the jobs will probably get harassed. It’s a seriously redneck area.

Illinois Sheriffs Say They Won’t Send Deputies To Help Fill Gap Created By Chicago’s Vaccine Mandate

“ILEAS (the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System) typically responds to emergency situations where there is no opportunity for planning,” Sheriff Hain told the paper on Tuesday. “This situation to me is much different.”

“This is all begotten by a lack of planning and support of the Chicago Police Department,” Sheriff Hain added. “So now, they are bleeding that out to us.”

“It’s like a preplanned police shortage,” Sheriff Mendrick agreed. “The lack of logic is the thing that astounds me.”

They love enforcing laws on others but never themselves. The irony!

Good, the more that die the better. They should be encouraged to die as quickly as possible. Jesus needs angels, they should all be encouraged to self-rapture and take as many other Good Christians with them, and by good I mean evil, selfish, hypocritical cunts. .

I'd like to start a suicide hotline that gives helpful tips for Republicans only.

Look at this as an opportunity to reform police departments. Vacancies will prompt hiring. Demand changes in hiring criteria so that we get a better class of recruit, perhaps people less likely to beat first and lie about it later.

Chicago DROPS vaccine mandate lawsuit against police union after Mayor Lori Lightfoot was humiliated by judge's order suspending her December 31 deadline to get the shots

Chicago had sued the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7 in October, accusing President John Catanzara of encouraging an 'illegal strike' by encouraging officers to disobey the order.

After dropping the suit, Lightfoot vowed Wednesday that if union leaders revived talk of an 'illegal work stoppage' over the mandate, the city would return to court.

Having previously defunded the police department, Lightfoot has now backed plowing more money into it amid worsening crime in her city.

The city insisted that those who didn't comply with the vaccine mandate would eventually be placed on 'no-pay status.'

In public statements and on social media, Catanzara encouraged police to disobey the order, telling them, 'do not fall for it, hold the line.' The union also sued.

Lightfoot said the mandate was put in place to protect officers and the public, and the Democrat mayor accused the cop union of 'insurrection' for defying her orders.

Last month, a judge suspended the December 31 deadline for police to be vaccinated but didn't interfere with a requirement that they be regularly tested.

The judge said the vaccination disputes should be handled as a labor grievance, which city officials said could take months.

Catanzara, who has repeatedly clashed with Lightfoot, retired as an officer last month as he faced disciplinary hearings over past incendiary comments.

He remains union president and did not immediately return a message left Wednesday seeking comment.

Another way of putting that, R14, is that the security apparatus of American cities is beyond civilian control.

Lori Lightfoot is a disaster as mayor.

Oh yes, every police union across the USA has become a snakepit of Qanon insanity and fascist masturbation but Lightfoot is the disaster.

You’re right, R15, I just completely made that up. Totally out of thin air because I had nothing better to do that create bullshit.

Oh, wait.

Police union leaders are almost always white, fat, racist pieces of shit. Pick a city, any city, and you'll find someone who would fit great in a KKK chapter.

...and PS, these guys are also scummy on many other levels. Despite a handful of gay or gay friendly cops, most are homophobic, and they are misogynistic too.

I lived near one of the 911 centers in Chicago and our neighborhood group was on a quick tour of the facility (parts we were allowed to see) and two guys that were supposed to be doing....well, something else, who knows what? were watching women who walked on the sidewalk past that building from a camera on the outside, commenting in graphic terms on their body parts. But hey, Blue Lives Matter!

The FBI raided the home of the head of NYC's Sergeant's Union because he was a grifting theif who stole money to live a lavish lifestyle.

Of course, he blamed Hillary and the Deep State, like every other self-pitying right wing, white male asshole who thinks the world owes him everything.

Three NFL players suspended for lying about their vaccination status.

The suspensions come two weeks after a Los Angeles chef told the Tampa Bay Times that Brown obtained a fake COVID-19 vaccination card shortly before the start of training camp in July. The newspaper reported that Steven Ruiz provided a screenshot of a text message exchange in which Brown’s girlfriend asked the player’s former live-in chef if he could obtain Johnson & Johnson vaccination cards.

When the personal chef replied he could try, the girlfriend responded “Ab said he would give you $500.”

Ruiz, who also claimed Brown owes him an uncollected debt of $10,000, told the newspaper he was unable to find a vaccination card for Brown.

The chef added that a few weeks later he observed two vaccine cards on a dining room table that the receiver told him were purchased for the player and his girlfriend.

How much of the Chicago PD pushback is likewise from black officers.

If I was an overweight, middle-aged male with a h.s. education, I wouldn't be so cavalier about jeopardizing a job that paid that much. Think may think they're going to live off wifey, but a lot of divorces happen around that age group.

R31 is right and what's funny is if they decide to go into the private sector, the Republicans they've voted for all their lives have created an environment where employees have virtually no power and have to do what the bosses want - and that includes vaccinations.
